Spain In Europe

Spain is the second largest country by land mass in Europe and is home to more than 46 million people. Located on the Iberian peninsula and bordering Portugal to the West, it is one of the most beautiful and peaceful countries on the continent. The official language is Spanish; the minority speaks other languages like English and Italian. With a 505,990 square mile size, the country has loads of tourist attractions that will make your visit worthwhile. Currently, the tourism industry is the second largest in the world in terms of visitors and revenue generation.

Due to Spain’s position as a former colonial power and home to the Spanish language, many visitors come from Spanish-speaking countries. Moreover, the famous tourist attractions in Barcelona, Valencia, Madrid, and Seville attract millions yearly. Museums, resorts, ruins, cathedrals, and more are abundant in Spain.

Other side attractions include the famous bullfighting exhibitions, the festival of tomatoes, flamingos, and more. Then there is Ibiza, with its lovely beaches and resorts, the Alhambra Gardens, the Grand Mosque of Cordoba, and the Sagrada Familia. In fact, Spain has so much to see, which is why it is the second most visited country in the world.

Types Of Spain Tourist Visa

There are two types of tourist visas for visitors.

National Visa: The national Spain visa is issued by only the Spanish government to tourists. This visa can only be used to visit Spain and no other country. It is valid for 180 days and allows the holder to stay for up to 90 days. It is only meant for vacation and sightseeing, not for long-term stays.

Schengen Tourist Visa: The Schengen tourist visa is another type of tourist visa issued by the Spanish authorities because it is a Schengen country. Spain became a Schengen nation in 1995 and an EU nation-state. This association allows its government to issue Schengen visas to visitors. Holders of this visa can visit any of the other Schengen nations in Europe, provided they make their first stop in Spain. Schengen visas are valid for 180 days and allow up to 90 days of stay. They are also multiple entry visas.
